Every week ArtisticMoods invites an artist to tell us something about the ambitions behind their work. This week: freelance graphic- & surface designer Marina Molares.
I was born in an intercultural family, with a Spanish father and an American mother. Because of my father’s job I’ve spent much of my life traveling. From Belgium to China, to the USA, England and Madrid, sampling the cultures around me. So I’ve evolved into a product of time and circumstances.
My work incorporates playful textures, collage, sculpture, illustrative patterns, photography and pop culture references. My passion for surface design started growing after graduating in Fine Arts and receiving my MA of Arts. That’s when I discovered how fun it is to play with repetition and incorporating raw, organic illustrations into the prints.
